“When I am there, it is like I am with family, it’s like I am chilling with my cousins and it’s all fun. Yes, work comes first but we are really made to feel at home. I honestly do not mind waking up at 4 am to get to work.”
The Monday 13 June teaser reads:
“Mr Faku’s problems with a loan shark take a drastic turn.”
